The state Department of Transportation will host an online public meeting Tuesday to present its plans for a $15 million project to reconfigure a busy intersection on the east side of Fairbanks that’s scheduled to begin next year.

Fort Wainwright

Work will begin next month on improvements to the busiest entryway into Fort Wainwright. The project on the eastern stretch of Gaffney Road will require temporary closure of the Main Gate and Visitors Center. When it’s completed, the changes will help traffic flow more smoothly on to post. It’ll also enable vehicles to get through a much-bigger construction zone that the state will set next year at a nearby major intersection.
